Dreams of Spring

Kenneth Andrews

ONNY musicians are eager to perform in-person once again. For the safety of musicians and concertgoers, the public is asked to wear masks while in all public places, such as the lobby, restrooms, and while socially distanced in the concert hall.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the program planned for the spring concert on April 2 and 3 in Potsdam and Watertown respectively has been changed. The new composition, "Still Life in Motion," will be premiered at ONNY's fall concert in October. 

ONNY is pleased to present "Dreams of Spring" with the following program on April 2 and 3 in Potsdam and Watertown respectively.  Our professional musicians look forward to performing the premiere of a new work, Waves, by Constantine Darie, a 9th Grade student at Potsdam High School.
